This goes to all the alternative-fans out there. Colida are really masters of their genre. Having started playing back in the 90s, having supported bands like 'Hot Water Music' or 'ACME', they used their musical experience for perfectionating their own polished style. In 2005 they recorded "eyes shut and ears wide open" at 'Die Tonmeisterei' in Oldenburg, a studio wellknown for indie- and hardcore-sounds. Beyond others Assault-records and Weserlabel let their bands record their releases there.
With 'eyes shut and ears wide open' Colida have made up a record full of melodic aggression. A rough engergetic guitar, a smooth bass, energetic drums in combination with the voice of frontman Samante Kamaladiwela turn this recording into a brilliant piece of alternative.

Great Music, It's Fat!!!
Wow! First time when I heard the songs I immediatly had a smile on my face. Nice melodies paired with a fat line-up fat guitar and bass riffs as well as great drums. Listening to COLIDA is like bigwave surfing :-). Looking forward to see them live on stage...

Liked it once I listened to the VBR selections
Stay away from the 64 kbps...the bit rate is screwy, least that's the way it worked for me. Good sound. Look forward to more listening.
